Yoga, Creativity & The Hero’s Journey
:: Navigating Your Badass Call to Adventure ::
February 22-24 at Shanti Yoga, McCall, ID
At some point in your life, you will be faced with a Call to Adventure. It may not necessarily come when or how you expect. However, when YOUR adventure comes calling, if you can resist the temptation to refuse it, if you can make friends with fear and proceed through the challenges, you will proceed through the dark night and ‘return home’ with the hard-won jewels of self-understanding and transformation. Using Carl Jung’s mythic map of The Hero’s Journey in conjunction with yoga, live music, mindfulness meditations, and creative process work, you will cultivate the tools to answer the call of your own badass human adventure. Supplies needed for workshop: Mat, Towel, Water, Writing Journal, You.
